Two divisions had separated the sides last year but the Scholars’ promotion coupled with the Hawks’ relegation from National League South put the pair on a collision course.

And there was little between them although Bar may feel they could have edged it when the Brighton-based club had Lucas Rodrigues sent off for two yellow cards.

That was with 26 minutes remaining but despite upping the pressure, they rarely troubled Melvin Minter in the visitors’ goal.

Their best chance came deep in stoppage time when a Billy Adcock effort produced an acrobatic flying stop by Minter.

Earlier a goal from Steve Brown, after a Keagen Cole free-kick was helped on by James Budden, had put Potters Bar in front but the lead was short-lived with Harry Shooman getting the equaliser five minutes later.
